Tunisian Bracelet

This morning I was looking for a quick and fun idea for scrap yarn. It’s been one of those mornings where I wanted instant gratification – not an easy thing to achieve with knitting or crochet! The above bracelet is the result of that!

The yarn is a bit fuzzy which is why the photo appears a little blurry. It was a fun and fast project!

I started with my Denise hooks, some pretty scrap yarn, my scissors and a yarn needle. I chained until it fit around my wrist loosely, for me, that was 30 chains using an F hook. My yarn is a sock weight so if you use a thicker yarn you’ll want to go up in hook size. I worked 3 rows of the Tunisian knit stitch and then fastened off. I then sewed the ends together and weaved in the ends! That’s it! Done!

You can do as many or few rows as you’d like. Whatever you do, don’t block it! This is the one time we want the curl! The curl is what gives it the lovely bangle shape.

These are perfect gifts or even stocking stuffers you can whip up in no time! What a great way to use up pretty bits of yarn you just can’t stand to part with!

Broomstick Lace

Broomstick Lace is a quick and easy stitch for pretty much any project. The broomstick needle is so large that it makes it ideal for any weight or fiber content of yarn. Fine yarns create a very lacy design with a beautiful drape. Heavier yarns create a more dense and warm fabric.

 

The yarn I used on the cover photo of Crochet! magazine Spring 2017 is Premier Aurora which is a medium weight acrylic. It’s a beautiful yarn that could very easily be mistaken for a sumptuous wool. The colors are soft yet vibrant and the changes are subtle and very pleasing to the eye.

 

I hope you enjoy my newest pattern! Please share your photos of the shawl with me on Ravelry!
